I’m actually against mandatory voting. It’s a dumb idea that wouldn’t survive the Constitutional test. It’s an idea with good intentions. Everyone should be civic minded enough to vote. However you also have the freedom to be a lethargic Cheeto eating couch dwelling sponge.
A part of me wants to support mandatory voting just to watch Republicans freak out. If everyone voted it would truly hurt the GOP and they’d never win a midterm election again. Never again.
Despite being the one to start the discussion I don’t think President Obama is actually for mandatory voting. He didn’t even endorse the idea or propose it becoming a law. He just talked about, probably only to freak out Republicans.
I’m not afraid of it becoming law. Obama doesn’t have time, it would never pass a GOP-controlled Congress, and it wouldn’t survive the first court challenge.
